The Future of Bionics
Human Bionics Interface – creating bionic solutions for mankind
Human-Bionics Interface Frontiers is a new professional and industry group bridging the gap between people, bionic interfaces and science for the benefit of millions of patients worldwide. A unique cluster of specialists and organisations are focused specifically on previously untreatable medical conditions.
The bionics industry is developing rapidly, with many frontiers involving the design and construction of multiple complex human/bionics interfaces.
Human Bionic Interface Frontiers
Having worked with the bionic ear since 1992, Associate Professor Dimity Dornan AO (Founder and Executive Director of Hear and Say) has been working on the development of Human-Bionic Interface Frontiers, an Australian initiative to grow the bionics industry. This giant, living laboratory is connecting people of different expertise, working in the industry, to collaborate and share their knowledge.
At 9.10pm on 24 October 2013 our beautiful daughter Maia was born.
The moment of elation was short-lived as we immediately noticed her left ear was missing. I frantically looked to the medical team around me for answers but received none.
Panic set in as we waited 4 days in hospital for an ENT to explain her condition, by which point we already had all the answers from Simone, who runs the Microtia and Atresia Program at Hear and Say.
